AgForce reckons there’s a lot going on in the beef industry at the moment … the Red Meat 2030 strategy, a proposal to create a unified red meat peak body, the imminent introduction of new Reef regulations, the risk of biosecurity incursions and the rise of vegan activism.
And then there’s the drought …
The way forward will be the focus of a discussion at AgForce’s “What’s Your Beef?” industry forum which will be held in the South Burnett on November 1.
Everyone involved in the Queensland cattle industry – AgForce members and non-members alike – have been invited to have their say in the industry’s future.
The forum is being held in conjunction with the AgForce Cattle Board AGM and will be hosted at ‘Cardowan’, the property of Board Director Alice Greenup and husband Rick near Kumbia.
Cattle Board President Will Wilson said the forum was a must-attend event for anyone who wanted to have a hand in setting the direction of the Queensland cattle industry.
“Discussion will focus on the opportunities and challenges currently facing the industry,” he said.
“This will help set the agenda for the Cattle Board and is likely to have implications for all producers and others involved in the supply chain, whether industry or government, so all are encouraged to attend and participate.”
‘Cardowan” is located at 1563 Ironpot Road, Ironpot.
The forum will kick off at 10:30am and include a complimentary working lunch.
Attendees are also invited to stay on for a barbecue and drinks from 5:00pm, with a chance to chat to Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington.
